welcome to The Story
Today, we are beginning a kind of epic adventure, a trip through the Bible from beginning to end. We are will be using a book appropriately called "The Story" as tool. The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps people understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily.
If open and read each week, come Sunday, discuss group, 3 things happen:
- You will know the story of God. A lot people, raised in church, know stories, but don’t know how it all fits together.
- Know the God of the Story. Theme: Bible is the story of what God has done through history to rescue fallen humanity and restore a broken world.
- It will change YOUR story. Bible is not collection of old religious myths and fables with no connection to life. .. this will help us live our own lives. Only way you will truly find purpose/meaning to life is as you find your place in God’s story.
